Some days ago I found an interesting question.
As I know we can use some stative verbs in continuos with a difference in meaning. There are two sentences:
We'd been wanting to go to New Zealand for years, so sixtieth birthday was a good excuse
We're wanting to buy a new TV, but we are not sure what to get
There was an explanation: We can use a continuous form of "want" if we have ongoing or repeated process; indirectness or politeness. Is it really acceptable?
P.S.: I am not a native speaker
